"Blue Velvet" is a popular song written and composed in 1950 by Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris. A top 20 hit for Tony Bennett in its original 1951 version, the song has since been re-recorded many times, with a 1963 version by Bobby Vinton reaching No. 1.

The first artist for whom "Blue Velvet" was a hit was Tony Bennett who recorded the song in a 17 July 1951 session with the Percy Faith orchestra: released 21 September 1951,

Bennett's "Blue Velvet" peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard chart of "Records Most Played by Disc Jockeys," while reaching No. 18 on Billboard's chart of "Best Selling Pop Singles," and No. 18 on Billboard's chart of "Most Played Juke Box Records."

Bennett's version made its album debut on a 1958 compilation disc that was also titled Blue Velvet.

A live version of "Blue Velvet" was featured on the 1962 concert album Tony Bennett at Carnegie Hall, with the selection being included on The Good Life, a 1963 EP release in the UK.

Bennett dueted with k.d. lang on a remake of "Blue Velvet" for his 2011 album Duets II, while Bennett's 2012 album Viva Duets featured Bennett duetting on "Blue Velvet" with Maria Gadú, who sang her part in Portuguese.
